Yesterday, the DAP CEC issued a statement rejecting the appointment of PAS Pasir Panjang assemblyman Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as Menteri Besar of Perak and said the DAP Perak assemblymen "will stay away from the swearing-in ceremony" scheduled at 4pm today.
Looks like the "problem" has been resolved.
Here's the full statement:
Apology to Perak Sultan and Regent - no offence intended
My three-paragraph statement at 7 pm last night that the DAP Central Executive Committee emergency meeting on 9th March had not given approval for a PAS Mentri Besar to head a Perak coalition state government was not made out of disrespect to the Perak Sultan and Regent both whom I have always held in the highest regard and I apologise for any offence caused. The statement was on the party position at the time.
There have been further discussions and developments on the matter in the hours after the statement.
Announcements of the latest position will be made.
